Dear All,  

Institutional partnerships (especially in the higher education context) is a 
cross-cutting activity across A2K's various language plans and also the pilot 
project. A2K Team is happy to share with you an important outcome on this 

CIS-A2K has signed an MoU with TISS as part of which we will collaboratively 
work towards building Digital Knowledge Partnerships with select higher 
education institutions. The objective is to enhance digital literacy in the 
Indian languages and facilitate collaborative knowledge production and free 
dissemination. A2K along with TISS will co-design and jointly implement 
relevant training programmes to achieve this. Further, within TISS campuses we 
will endeavour to bring teaching-learning processes onto free and open digital 
platforms, including Indian language Wikipedias. The A2K team would like to 
acknowledge the pivotal role played by our Adviser Dr. Tejaswini Niranjana in 
buildig this collaboration.   

We'll keep you posted as and when new developments shape up and would like to 
actively involve Mumbai Wikipedians in planning, designing and rolling out 
Wikipedia training programmes.
